What is the origin name of chlorine?
In 1809 Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac and Louis-Jacques Thénard tried to decompose dephlogisticated muratic acid air by reacting it with charcoal to release the free element muriaticum (and carbon dioxide). They did not succeed and published a report in which they considered the possibility that dephlogisticated muratic acid air is an element, but were not convinced. In 1810, Sir Humphrey Davy tried the same experiment again, and concluded that it was an element, and not a compound. He named this new element as chlorine, from the Greek word χλωρος (chlōros), meaning green-yellow

What was oxygen named after?
Under the incorrect phlogiston theory, oxygen was originally called dephlogisticated air. The named "oxygen" (oxygene) was applied to the element by Antoine Lavoisier. He had called it "vital air" and discovered it was a constituent of some acids. The name comes from the Greek roots oxys (sharp, acid) and genes (producing), or acid-producing.
